CAIRO - Hundreds of Egyptians protested violence against the country's Coptic Christian minority Monday after Muslim mobs burned a church and sparked riots in Cairo that left 13 people dead. Spiraling sectarian tension is emerging as a fault line in the aftermath of the popular uprising that forced Hosni Mubarak from power in February. Protesters criticized the interim military rulers for their handling of the weekend violence and demanded the officer in charge of the country resign.

Hazel Mae Baskerville Nelson, 86, a Philadelphia schoolteacher and Baptist community leader who inspired generations of young people, including Mayor Goode, died Thursday at Roxborough Memorial Hospital. Mrs. Nelson, a Mount Airy resident, was a teacher at the Hill and Fulton Elementary Schools in Philadelphia for 45 years. But she was perhaps better known as a frequent speaker at the churches of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. "She had the kind of personality that just drew people to her," said Sadie V. Hamilton, national director of the Women's Service Committee of the Baptist Foreign Mission Bureau in Philadelphia.

Trading quips with longtime friend Marie Schiavo in the comfort of Schiavo's Collingswood apartment, Andy Landis seems right at home. Indeed, the occasion is a homecoming of a sort. The woman who grew up in Bellmawr as Cynthia Landis - the "Andy" comes from a teacher who misread "Cindy" - moved as a teenager to Los Angeles, where she landed parts in Dallas, CHiPs, Charlie's Angels and The Twilight Zone, and several commercials. Now she lives in Nashville and has a record album, Stranger, on the Star Song Communications label, in the Top 10 on two contemporary-Christian music lists.

Taalibah Kariem-White had long shunned celebrations of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, until yesterday. For years, she thought of the observances as fleeting remembrances of the Civil Rights legend that had no lasting impact beyond the day. But when the follower of Islam was invited by a Christian woman to a Jewish synagogue for a South African woman's speech about social change, Kariem-White couldn't resist. "Especially with what happened on Sept. 11," said Kariem-White, of Germantown.

CAIRO - Relations between Egypt's Muslims and Christians degenerated to a new low Sunday after riots overnight left 12 people dead and a church burned, adding to the disorder of the country's postrevolution transition to democracy. The attack on the Virgin Mary Church was the latest sign of assertiveness by an ultraconservative movement of Muslims known as Salafis. Their increasing hostility toward Egypt's Coptic Christians in the last few months has met with little interference from the armed-forces council, which took temporary control of the country after President Hosni Mubarak was deposed Feb. 11. After the overnight violence in the slum of Imbaba, some residents said the military and the police had done almost nothing to intervene in the five-hour frenzy.

ISLAMABAD - A Muslim cleric is accused of stashing pages of a Quran in a Christian girl's bag to make it seem like she burned the Islamic holy book, a surprising twist in a case that caused an international outcry over the country's strict blasphemy laws. Pakistani police arrested Khalid Chishti late Saturday after a member of the cleric's mosque accused the imam of planting evidence as a way to push the Christians out of the neighborhood. Chishti denied the charges Sunday while being led to court in shackles, wearing a white blindfold.

FOR OUR CHILDREN'S SAKE Has everyone given up on our children? Have our Christian families stopped praying for each other? In my early teens, I cannot remember my society being as violent as it now. Drug dealers are killing our children with poison and bullets. Instead of dreaming of becoming important in society one day, some children don't dream at all. They have lost faith in themselves. They see the world as hopeless. We must teach our children to love one another and never give up hope.

LAHORE, Pakistan - It was barely 4 a.m. when 19-year-old Rinkal Kumari disappeared from her home in a small village in Pakistan's southern Sindh province. When her parents awoke, they found only her slippers and a scarf outside the door. A few hours later her father got a call telling him that his daughter, a Hindu, had converted to Islam to marry a Muslim boy. Only days later, Seema Bibi, a Christian woman in the province of Punjab, was kidnapped along with her four children after her husband couldn't repay a loan to a large landlord.

It's about time. After a week of anti-American violence in the Muslim world over a video that offends Islam, President Obama finally made a rousing defense of free speech, even if it insults religion. Following the outburst of outrage in Libya and Egypt, American officials repeatedly deplored the video. There should have been more U.S. outrage over a campaign of violence orchestrated by Islamists and abetted by some Muslim leaders. In his annual address to the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, Obama went a good ways toward setting the record straight.

A few hours before he was charged with Mary Hinson's murder, Brian Jenkins had told reporters that she was a "fine Christian woman" who was kind and helpful to him and other neighbors. Yesterday at his sentencing, Hinson's daughter, Tatia, 39, faced him in Superior Court. "How did it make you feel, stabbing that fine Christian woman who fed you and who prayed for you? How would you feel if someone did that to your mother?" Jenkins, 27, was sentenced to a life prison term for killing Hinson, 59, in October 2002.
